It is my belief that something like narcolepsy should be treated (as it can be dangerous) -especially for those of us with TBI's as our bodies can't fight off what they need to - until they resolve - which they will as our bodies get healthier and better equipped to handle these things on their own. Some times that means just medicating in some form until the body can function well enough to regulate this or that again.
I figured I would have to live with a whole list of issues, but I'm finding out that as my body heals, some things are actually returning to "normal functioning" without any medication. The key is to get the healing started, as you heal things will correct themselves - unless too much damage has been done.
Here's an example to what I'm trying to say~
I have Lyme arthritis. My fingers and toes are twisted and the knuckles are huge and I have a lot of pain in them. I started my Lyme treatment back in March of this year (7 months ago) and I am seeing a lot of improvement in my hands. My fingers and toes will never straighten out again, but the swelling and even a bit of the twisting is gone and my pain has been reduced significantly - because I got treatment. There are things that go haywire and can be undone - I'm having my memory improve greatly and am even getting memories back - and things that will just never be the same - like my hands and feet. It's all about
damage control in a way.
So have I confused the issue enough?

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, making long paragraphs very hard to read.
